    played at Harrah's in Counsel Bluffs Iowa today. I've played at some long tables before but this took the cake. no luck but who knows because you have to believe what the stick man tells you cuz you cant see the result because the table is so long and the place is so frickin dark. bought in for $200, $10 pass lines got $5 fire plus $5 $5 $5 all tall small. I'm the only one at the table, noon on a Friday. made a couple of points but couldn't get a roll going. forget dice setting just getting them to the back wall is a chore. staff not very friendly but I'm from out of town so maybe its just me. needless to say they took it all from me, oh well there are a couple of other casinos nearby maybe I will try my luck elsewhere. anyone play here before?

    Try ameristar. It's the next exit south. Sounds like harrahs has put in a different table that's longer.

    I've never done any good on the harrahs table. Wierd bounces and too many prop bettors for my taste.

    Ameristar has better dealers too.

    When I'm passing through Council Bluffs, I usually play at Horseshoe and Ameristar. I don't play much at Harrah's even when I stop by that casino. Horseshoe continuously sends me pretty good offers even though I only play there about once a year.

    Next time, get a Runza (sandwich) at Runza while you're in the area. There is a Runza in Council Bluffs and several across the river in Omaha.

    If I remember correctly the Horseshoe has 14 or 16' tables while Ameristar has 12 footers.

    I've heard that the Horseshoe took out the end table oriented North South and replaced it with a bubble machine. Haven't been there to confirm yet. That may be where the long table at Harrahs came from as they used to have a 12 footer there.

    FYI: Harrahs closes their craps table sometime during the night and reopens it at 10am. Horeseshoe and Ameristar always have at least 1 table open. At least they did the last time I was there.

    If we don't make it in between we'll be there Nov 13th/14th for the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert.
